The Eagles Sign Up For Two More Years Of The Sam Bradford Experience

BradfordDeal

The Philadelphia Eagles will hop right back on the Sam Bradford bandwagon in 2016 and ’17 after the team opted to sign him for two more seasons.

The 28-year-old Bradford signed a two-year deal worth $36 million including $26 million guaranteed.

The injury-plagued Bradford, who missed two games last season, threw 19 touchdown passes to 14 interceptions in 2015.

It’s a wise maneuver by the Eagles because it allows them to not take a big hit on the salary hit by using a franchise tag on Bradford.

Instead, the Eagles can allocate their dollars to provide some form of cap relief – similar to what New England did with Tom Brady on Monday.

Somewhere, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who will be inking a new deal in the new future, was probably cackling loudly after hearing about the Bradford deal.

Anyhow, let’s hope there is a lot less of this next season:

Cross your fingers.
